“I can’t control what someone might say about me once I’m gone. But I can control myself, and the choices I make, and the life I live, and I can do things deliberately and with intention — I can live … Continue reading Remembering the Dead to Remember How To Live
I just got home from 4 days in Acapulco, Mexico, where I attended the Anarchapulco conference. I did a main stage speech on Friday (30 minutes) about the nature of Liberty and I did a little Q&A panel on Sunday … Continue reading Anarchapulco 2019 – Peaceful Parenting Q&A
So, this website debuted recently that allows anonymous feedback (because what could possibly go wrong?). I decided last week to try it out, and then I ended up getting interesting comments so I started sharing them, making things kind of like an AMA. To add your own feedback, click here.

“I like to ask my fellow libertarians what we’d do if we “won” and we didn’t have to fight for liberty anymore – we’d achieved it. It’s a fun exercise to learn what people value when they can spend their energy on the things they love instead of fighting for the freedom to enjoy them.
